Hi Simirana, I don't think so earning money online is a waste of time. I've been earning online for the past 3 years. I earn close to $800 and $1000 every month. I write articles and participate in mylot discussions as I love responding to queries. I also pick up article ideas by way of responding to discussions. Just visit my profile and blog, you will surely get a lot of ideas to make money online. All the best!

I think the first step to take is to measure your opportunity cost to make money online. I do not think it is that easy to make a lot of money online. If you want to get the persistent income from the internet, it could take you a lot of time and energy just like the normal job you can take in the real life. If you have high opportunity cost, you should not ask such questions. It is very stupid. If you can have a decent job and have good pay each month, why bother making money online. It is just a waste of time. Let's suppose you have low opportunity cost, you do not have too much skills and necessary education to get a good job. I think you can try making money online. After all you have to make living yourself. Like people responding your question, making money still needs some effort and important skills, such as writing and finding good deal. If you fail after some try, I advise you to find a everyday job, even if the job can not give you too much money. I think this choice is for most of us. Do not dream of making easy money online. Good luck to you.

hi simirana^^;; it will be a waste of time when your time being spent trying to earn from the internet will not really be paid off. or let's say your internet bill will be higher more than what you are earning. there are some who have succeeded in make lots of money here but they have a skill like how to market and be an affiliate and some have lots of referrals. they are also good freelance writers so if you think you can write articles, search sites that offers like this. there is also odesk where you can find available jobs offered by individuals and companies. goodluck to your quest but also consider having a stable job offline

Hi SIMIRANA Welcome to mylot. First of all I am also new in making money online as a matter of fact I am still far to reached my minimum payment here in mylot. Believe it or not many people out there who have been successful in making money online some of them revealed/publish their success but most of them they prefer not to. SCAM, are just anywhere as long as 'money talks' there is, where in fact this not only happening virtually or here online but also in the non-virtual life. I can count on myself of having been SCAM by several site because of the truth is most likely happened to new a comers like me. However,though there are so many SCAM site there is still left that pays even they cheats. To earned from making money online one of the key is you must have a positive thoughts so that you can earned a few penny. I would say its not a waste of time because you will earn even few cents. Just keep on responding and replying topic(s) or discussion here in myLot 4 to 5 days you will see your earning.

Hello SIMIRANA this is checkmail and delay in earning online isn't an big pro, as myself i got scammed for nearly two years for tying to earn online.Yeah all types of sites, think just our luck ran out.Recently only i got an payment from an revenue site and now at mylot am having mine payout on 15 th of this month.Ans am much more excited about it.Well over here on internet if you want to earn an dcent income you gota invest in some programs and for investment you will need cash.So thats the reason earning online isn't an waste of time but utilising instead of spending time in useless things.Hope you too won't give up so eaily, try hard for it.Nothing comes easy in this world.

There are many ways to earn on the internet. If you check out my profile here on mylot you will see some pages that i have earned from and yuo can join those as well. The way i aern most of the money on the internet is by writing articles for freelance internet companies needing articles to be written. You can choose to write the ones they have available for you or to just write and publish your own stuff. You will get paid for the page views and then if you choose to write one of the articles they have available you can earn from that itself. My favorite writing site that i have come across so far is associated content and i just started up not to long ago with Bukisa and have earned a small amount and not enough for the minimum payout, but then again i havent wrote many articles on that site. I hope this has helped you out and enjoy writing here on mylot. Dont forget you can earn a decent amount of money each month on this site and as long as you can respond to around 30 to 40 discussions a day you will be making the payout every month. Enjoy
